AHHHH. I've been waiting on this one. Great representation of the falls. How crowded was it? Seems there's always someone there you have to wait on.
Just curious... You seem to be hitting a lot of the unknowns. Are you familiar with the area or do you have family in the area?

Just across the road and up the hill about 50-75 yards is a pull off and you can go down to the railroad tracks, walk across the train bridge and walk down some "steps" to the river. Some great shot opportunities there as well.

GREAT SHOT. Thanks for bringing a little bit of home to me...…

Thanks for the good words, sir! Funny thing about going back... I grew up in Pittsburgh and never visited WV. Went away 12 years and now that I'm back for a short time, am filling every weekend with something new. Even visited the Paw Paw Tunnel with my Dad about two months ago. I'd recommend the WV Penn at Moundsville and the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum if you haven't visited. They have sort-of monthly photography tours.

So on finding the Cathedral Falls: I was in the park store at Babcock and checking out the photography section and see a picture of some falls that, I'm like, 'oly cow these are amazing! So I checked the back of the picture and saw Cathedral Falls, did the Google, and rerouted my trip home to have a stop. How about The Google?! Not crowded during my stop on a Friday morning. There were some kids up to trouble in the parking lot so my wife stayed with the car.

Turner Falls in south central Oklahoma. Taken from the overlook on US-77, since I didn't want to pay the $14.00 gate fee to get closer. Two different dates.

Little waterfall just west of Bokchito, OK on US-70. It's only a waterfall after a rain. Most of the time it's a dry rock.

Great story and great way to travel. My wife and I often reroute our trips for a more scenic route as well. That's the best way to travel. Thanks for suggestions. I just may have to try them out. I hope you enjoyed your travels. You definitely have some great shots from it.

Amazing landscape. Beautifully photographed.
The erosion that has taken place over eons to carve down to its current state. Mind boggles.

Thanks for the comments. It's Spahats Creek Falls in Wells Gray Park and it is much more amazing live.

This is Sabbaday Falls in the White Mountain National Forest. It is located on the Kancamaugus Highway, and just a short hike to the falls from the parking area.
It's about an our from me, of which we took a great motorcycle ride to the falls.
There were very few people, and the breeze kept the mosquitos away.

We swam in that very spot as kids. The water was icy cold. And deep.
